Title: Gypsy Summer

Description: This quilt voices my concern over women and children leaving refugee camps in Afghanistan. As they walk to an uncertain future dust swirls around their feet. They have become traveling gypsies, not knowing where water or their next home will be. I am astounded at the strength of these wandering people, particularly the women with their children to care for. I wonder whether their memories of past happiness with families, homes,song and dance is what helps them survive.

Materials: Hand-dyed cotton, silk, lame, sheers and tulle . Beads, sequins.
Machine pieced, machine and hand appliquéd, machine quilted
